Looks like this one hit the interwebs recently. This is the cover I did for GRIMM FAIRY TALES PRESENTS: GRIMM UNIVERSE #2 from Zenescope Entertainment. Hope ya dig it! These two were a lot of fun to paint.
Pretty nice, the eyes on the wolf are really menacing and you did the snarl lines on the face of the animal very well. My only nitpicks are that that the thigh draped over is a little short, and moonlight tends to have more of a cool reddish hue than saturated blue, despite the tricks our eyes play on us. I would also be a little more sparing with the kicker highlights(I know, they're fun) on the edges of the characters-- you have a lot of those going on in places where they don't really make sense, like the side of her hood, which, in theory, would be blocked by the large wolf behind her. Great piece, I'm sure they loved it!
I totally hear you on the "unrealistic" lighting. But if you pop in just about any movie you'll notice NONE of the night scenes (as well as some day) are lit just by the light sources of their environment. It's all about making something pop or trying to separate certain elements (like the girl and the wolf). And of course moonlight isn't actually blue. James Gurney made that very clear in "Color and Lighting", but it was just a stylistic choice.
I appreciate the crit though! There's not enough of that on DA. And when it happens, some artists like to cry about it (I'm not naming names but they're are too many out there). Hope you dig the piece despite it's flaws.
Why you.... Where were you when I was working on this!!!?? Ha ha, I need you to sit next to me while I work so these things don't happen. I drew the wolf separately with the legs but I guess during the painting process some proportions got a little wonky. DOH!
